The Story of Moissanite: A Gemstone from the Stars

Moissanite is a rare and beautiful gemstone that is said to have come from the stars. It was first discovered in 1893 by French scientist Henri Moissan. Moissan was examining rock samples from a meteorite crater in Arizona when he found tiny crystals of a strange mineral. He initially thought that the crystals were diamonds, but further analysis revealed that they were a new mineral altogether. Moissan named the mineral after himself, and it has been known as moissanite ever since.

Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral, but it is also created in laboratories. Laboratory-created moissanite is identical to natural moissanite in every way, including its chemical composition, physical properties, and appearance.

Moissanite is one of the hardest gemstones in the world, second only to diamonds. It is also very brilliant and has a fire that is comparable to diamonds. However, moissanite is much more affordable than diamonds, making it a great alternative for those who are on a budget.
